Picked up a Shield red dot yesterday. Using the plate for the Leupold everything lines up but it does not seat all the way down. THe four little posts seem too tall. Before I file them down, has anyone else mounted one of there PPQ match using that plate?

Buy the Shield plate from Shield, it is waaay better than any plate from Walther! It is one fifth of the weight and one third of the height. The plates from Walther are really bad in comparison, they make them in steel and thick as... well very unnecessarily thick.

What kind of extra fees did you have to pay to get this shipped from the UK? Customs, VAT, etc...I looked at a sight explaining what the possible charges could be coming from the UK, which is now free of the european union since Jan 1st, and the price doubles from all the extra charges. Damn near $300 if I figured it right. I could have my walther mount milled down and recoated for a whole lot less than that. The price of the red dot just went through the roof as well, over $1000.
